Prayers needed for my mother
April 29, 2011 | Swordmaker

We need prayers!

My 95 year old mother, Virgina, did not wake up this morning. She is still only semi-responsive in the emergency room at Sutter Memorial Hospital. When I arrived there from Stockton at 10:30AM here blood pressure was 53 over 37 and her O2 saturation level was 62%. I took her hand, which was very cold, and said "Hi Mom!" and she opened one eye and looked at me. When I asked her how she felt she mumbled "Awful!"

She then went back to being only semi-responsive.

Her BP is now much better and O2 is up to 87% on 100% oxygen... But she is still out of it.

The diagnosis is double pneumonia... But there also may be congestive heart failure.

At her age, I just want her not to suffer... Whether she is called home to God or recovers. What I fear is the horrid middle ground where she winds up with no quality of life in a nursing home and doesn't know who she is, who her family is, or what is happening to her and lingers forever in a medical limbo. She has left orders for no extraordinary measures to save her... And we will honor that. So prayers are needed for the best resolution for her... But God's will be done.

I know RIP, Mother something of your situation. But I don't know anything at all; every case is different. Mother lingered for years with a terminal diagnosis, Dad unexpectedly died in hours.

Only thing I can say is that I like you. And that that reflects on what I have to assume was the influence of your mother.

And I grieve at the thought of the loss implied in your #74.

Swordmaker, I’ll pray for your Mom and your entire family. I’m praying that His peace will be made manifest through the presence His Spirit in all of your lives, especially for your Mom as she goes home. God bless you my friend.

My mother was taken by God, peacefully, at 4:45PM today. She did not suffer. Thank you all for your prayers and kind thoughts. I and my family appreciate you all.

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Or you get raw with these strings. Either way, the violin is sweet yet lethal.

Do it!
